It’s because we love you… and hate freedom

The Editors link to a streaming video clip of a Seymour Hersh talk given at an ACLU event last week. Quoting Ed Cone’s summary:

Seymour Hersh says the US government has videotapes of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

“The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking,” the reporter told an ACLU convention last week. Hersh says there was “a massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there, and higher.”

As a public service to haters of America everywhere, we’re happy to offer this downloadable clip of Hersh’s speech (RealMedia 10, 8.3MB.) The quality isn’t anything like the original, but it beats having to stream 71MB.

Added: We’d be quite curious to know if this BitTorrent link works for anyone. [Note: ok, the file is available now for those interested.] ok, who needs BitTorrent when Scott is your ISP? For those who want their Seymour uncompressed, you can download this 71MB video clip. (Still in RealMedia format.)

Added II: Full transcript available at Past Peak.

In the video, Hersh also says that the boys’ mothers were so disraught that they wrote letters to their male relatives asking them to come to the prison and kill them, to put them out of their misery.

Mithras; After watching the streaming version,I needed a laugh. cheers


In order to make a bittorrent file availible you have to seed it. Its working, and a leach is connected but noone is seeding.


TGO: Sorry, we were offline for a while, but we are seeding now. :-/


Though I may be American I completely agree.
I am ashamed to be American. Not all Americans are jerks, Im not saying Im not a jerk because I am surely a jerk to that d*mned fool Bush.
